A quick thought after the dress rehearsal

Spinning into ButterI watched the final dress rehearsal of Spinning into Butter last night – the first preview is tonight, and we open on Monday. There’s a structural rhythm that Gilman consistently uses in her writing – not just the fact that most of her plays are episodic, meaning that they’re made up of short, contained scenes, but also in terms of how she builds tone and dramatic tension across the arc of the piece.

More on this later.

Come see the show, stick around for a discussion or join us here at the blog, and let us know what you’re seeing.
